According to this story, " Walmart this week announced that it is expanding a debt-free college tuition benefit for the retail giant's roughly 1.4 million U.S. employees." Called Live Better U, the offering consists of courses and programs offered in partnership with Guild Education, which acts as a broker for university courses. Guild also offers programs for other companies, including Lowe's and Disney. The more organizations like Guild grow, the greater will be the pressure on universities to lower prices.
